    If nintendo is willing to put some effort then yes. AMD's gpu should be directly competible and wii u has only 3 threads.

    I´m one of the 5 and I can say I won´t be pissed by this. I already have the games that I´ve got the WiiU for (about 10 or so) and, at least, we will have the new Zelda too. Also, the vWii is a great thing since I never had a Wii.

    Here is my prediction: Classic Gamepad/WiiU Pro Controls for Zelda on WiiU and crazy move/touch controls for Zelda on NX. Also Zelda WiiU and Zelda NX look identical, except some better lightning effects on NX (and a bug that forces you to wipe your save).

    They might show it at some other conference this year.
    Mario are intended for levels, unless you are talking about paper Mario sequel like super paper Mario 2.
    Metroid is always open world, there is just no non-hostile NPC, or still one or two.
    March means post spring festival in Asia and their main focus is still Japan. And Nintendo seems to care little about Western Releases (Japanese still look down on other countries today).
    Nintendo seem to be interested in the Chinese market where weird Japanese games that never get western releases are relatively more popular considering Chinese for Sun/ Moon.
    Nah, they are just becoming a fusion of Bandai and Sega with their own console.

    I'm just happy we have a release window. We're another step closer to finding out what the damn thing is.

    Here's what I'm thinking though. They're not referring to it as a console, but a "Dedicated gaming platform". Plus they're skipping a holiday release entirely. That's a really odd move for a game console. Handhelds are understandable, but a console? I'm still thirsty to know what the damn thing is.

    I'll be saving my money, not specifically for the NX, because the chances are it'll suck. Nintendo will have to do something amazing to get me to ever buy or support their consoles again. I really hope it's something good because I want a new console

    Nope. The official PDF from yesterday's meeting says it'll release globally in March 2017.

    And beside, Zen-Polaris APU will be ready then, or do you intend to have a console just slightly better than ps4?

    They get to see what Sony and Xbox are doing. I think this is a good thing. I'm pretty sure they will at least mention the NX at e3.

    You do know plans change, right?

    Yes it is. It's just me saying how dumb this name is.
    If WiiU and Xbox One weren't stupid enough, putting an X to the end of every main game is really dumb when it's a roman numeral that is oftenly used in games to make it clear that it's the 10th installment of that franchise.
    For us, gamers, it is easy to get, but for parents it can be problematic.
    Especially if third parties decide to keep up with this stupid idea.
    Nintendo also done it with Super and 64, but in those cases it was hard to get mistaken.
    Anyway, it's Nintendo, they're known for doing stupid and confusing stuff.

    March 2017? Interesting. That's the month when the 3DS released worldwide, with Japan getting it a month prior. I'm not saying this means the NX is a handheld. I'm just making note of the coincidence. As for this year's E3, this is what NoA PR says:

    It doesn't state that NX will be there, but it doesn't state it won't either. From what I remember, Nintendo's conference at E3 2011 started with Zelda and their 25th anniversary for a good chunk of time, then jumped into 3DS games, then ultimately ended with the unveiling of the Wii U, showing demonstrations, interviews with 3rd-parties, and *ugh* let EA take the stage. Again, that as E3 2011. Nintendo then at E3 2012 showed the Wii U again. Two E3s about the Wii U before it released. This, if true about no NX at E3, would be a first. There is another remark (can't find it atm) that states Nintendo will unveil the NX this year with specs, price, etc. It didn't say E3. It didn't say at what point this year at all, just this year.

    Now, maybe Nintendo delayed the NX unveiling because they (and 3rd-parties?) need more time for a better launch, or, after the outrage about the competitor's mid-gen refreshes, they feel they can hold off for a little. I dunno. All I know is that the money I've been saving up that was meant to go towards an NX based on an E3 unveiling would now be in my pockets for who knows how much longer.

    For Nintendo, E3 is outdated. Now they use Nintendo Directs for all important stuff, which I like!

    This makes me annoyed, I knew it from the start that this generation was an absolute waste of time. That goes for Microsoft and Sony too all the current gen consoles are duds which were out of date from the start.

  18. They should ditch European Nintendo Directs and include European dates on the US Nintendo Directs so this way there'd be no need for Shibata to say exactly the same lines as Reggie and Trinen. Problem with Shibata is his English accent, it's not very good.

    Except that it's the other way around. Reggie and Trinen copy Shibata's lines!

    Well, if it was released this year, it would have been the installement for the 30th anniversary, it would be named The Legend of Zelda XXX
